StuG.III Ausf.G Sd.Kfz.142/1

I found this video on YouTube showing a working Stug G at Tankfest (Bovington). I've not seen a moving example before, and given my current painting project I found this quite interesting to watch.

"The StuG was an assault gun based on the chassis of the panzer 3. This example was restored by the Sd.Kfz foundation, it had sat on the bed of the black sea for 60 years after its transport ship was torpedoed by a Russian submarine. Two were raised a few years ago but the other one has not been restored yet."

  1. Thanks for the complement about my blog. The only thing i want to change about it is replacing the brown background for a big picture of an eagle or WW 2 parachutists but i haven't found one in the right size. Your site is looking good too. You should go to the FoW forum, you can learn a lot there and ask all questions you have. All members are kind to help you even if you ask a question that has been asked a hundred times.


Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, keep rolling high!
